Tennis Tips and Predictions – Australian Open 2022 Men’s Final Preview
Caelum - January 29, 2022
What a spectacle of sport we have in front of us, in this year’s Australian Open Men’s Final 2022.
The ability and talent level of these two players combined is absolutely mental, and fans will be on the edge of their seats in what should be a match for the ages.
In the battle between two titans, only one may edge out the trophy.
Rafael Nadal and Danil Medvedev are this year’s way down under participants, and the riches to make out are immense.
Will the old reliable Lefty make it out alive on the hard court finals, or will the demon straight from Russia push him around in style?
Only time will tell, but we sure are going to have some fun!
Danil Medvedev was seeded #1 ahead of this year’s Australian Open draw, due to the fact that world #1 Novak Djokovic was out due to vaccination protocol in Australia.
He is taking this tournament to a whole different level, and is proving to the haters why he is considered one tennis’ most greatest players at the current moment.
Medvedev is clean from both angles, but more specifically his backhand side. Similar to Djokovic, Medvedev loves rallying and creates opportunities for himself off the first ball.
His returns are deep, and oftentimes creates trouble for the opponent on the serve plus one.
The Russian Machine is going to have no regrets heading into this final, and his mentality is one of the strongest in the world.
Although the crowd will not be on his side, Medvedev knows he has a great chance to beat one of the big three legends in a quest for a back to back slam.
Rafael Nadal is an obvious legend of the sport, and no one can deny that. The power and physicality he has shown throughout the years, is second to none.
Relying on heavy groundstrokes with topspin, Rafa has created a signature game that all opponents must be keen on defending. On this surface, however, Rafa has not garnered the success drawn on clay.
Due to the surface shift, Nadal has had limited opportunities to win his 21st Grand Slam. This, however, is one of his biggest opportunities to date.
The Spanish crowd and overall popularity of the legend will attract many cheers to his name on Sunday.
However, it is unproven whether or not he will be able to handle the Russian counterpunching.
Take over 3.5 sets, and over 4.5 sets. This will be a battle from the very beginning, and all sports fans must tune in!
